I was spoiled too!

This is my new toy I got for Christmas. I have wanted one for years. And I have waited YEARS to try homemade marshmallows (you can't possibly make them without a stand mixer). My wonderful hubby gave me this. I wonder if he got the idea as he stood holding the cord firmly into my 10 year old hand held mixer that is pretty much shot while I had to mix the chess bar filling for 3 mins straight that he asked me to make for him to take to a work thing. ;)
So after I broke it in with some pumpkin pie filling on Christmas day, I finally made some marshmallows. I just love the look of the white cubes.
However, there is nothing like them dipped in chocolate! Mmmmm mmmm! I want to make strawberry ones for Valentines. I got some strawberry candy flavoring at the hobby store the other day. I'm envisioning heart shaped, pink strawberry marshmallow pops dipped in white choc. :) I'll post pics of course when the time comes!

I also received some cash. Which what did I spend it on??
Mmmm yes, yummy fabric! And let me tell you! Hancocks Paducah has most of Heather Bailey's pop fabric OVER half price! Yes that is $4 a yard!! So 10 yards later I'm making the curtain panels I've been wanting for our living room!

And one last mention. I also got a Nikon CoolPix (I told you I was spoiled). I have a Nikon D50 that I use and it needs to go to the shop (which will take 5 weeks I'm told) for body repair. So now I have a wonderful and SMALL backup camera for kid/family pics in that time and can continue my blog. I'm going to make a cute little pouch for it too. :)

Sounds like a great Christmas for you! ANd yay for the Kitchen Aid. I got one for our wedding and absolutely love it. I've been eyeing the pasta attachment lately. . .

Oh, you got the good one too! I have the plain white one, small wattage. Yours looks like the professional. Yee Haw!

I so much want to make those marshmallows. They look sooo good!

Thanks for the heads up on the fabric. It is so pretty!

How fun! I just gave my stand mixer to my brother for christmas since i never used it, but seeing this makes me want to borrow it and make marshmellows!
